Connecting People and Wilderness
Yellowstone is a unique place. It has a magical quality that draws you in and exposes you to the raw power and beauty of nature. The park itself is located in the heart of what is referred to as the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, an area that stretches across three states; Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, and covers approximately 28-34,000 square miles. It's a backpackers paradise with more than 1,000 miles of hiking trails that meander through some of the most pristine wilderness in the contiguous United States. The featured hikes on our website represent some of the best of what Yellowstone has to offer and we hope the images and information you find here will provide the inspiration needed to plan your own adventures in the backcountry of this incredible wonderland. A place where wild animals still roam free and nature is left untouched for all to enjoy.

If you need help planning the perfect trip, our guided day hikes and backpacking tours are geared toward every skill level and interest. The idea is to have fun, enjoy the scenery and learn a little about Yellowstone's incredible history. There are plenty of stories to be told and plenty of stories yet to be written during your visit to Yellowstone.

Brian Farrell, Trail Guides Yellowstone
Brian Farrell, Owner/Guide
After moving to Bozeman in 2002, hiking and backpacking in Yellowstone National Park became a regular part of my life. Every time I set foot in the the Park I come away with a greater appreciation for the beauty and diversity that exists in this incredibly unique ecosystem. This is a very special place that I've come to know and love over the past 15 years and it's something I enjoy sharing with others.

Raised in upstate New York I was lucky enough to have spent my youth hiking, fishing and climbing in the Adirondacks, the Catskills, and the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Over the last 20 years I've had the pleasure of traveling and exploring the canyon regions of southern Utah and the many national forests and wilderness areas that surround my home in Bozeman, Montana. The Trail Guides website reflects the many wonderful experiences I've had in Yellowstone—a place where I can honestly say I feel right at home.

Emily Askey - Guide/Naturalist
Emily grew up skiing, biking and bagging 14ers in the mountains of Colorado. After moving to Bozeman (and graduating from Bridger Bowl University), she completed a field course to learn more about the geology, ecology and preservation efforts of Montana. In the summer of 2014, she finished a solo thru-hike of the Colorado Trail and dreams of those long days on the trail.

If she had to choose one favorite area of Yellowstone NP, it would be the trails near Mammoth Hot Springs...because there’s no better way to end the day than a nice, relaxing soak in the Boiling River!

In her down time, Emily enjoys researching new ski lines, eating french fries, and finding new ways to shed an ounce of weight from her pack.
